The Responsive Community Grants stream awards grants of up to $10,000 for worthwhile community projects. These grants ‘respond’ to local and current needs as demonstrated in applications submitted by local organizations.
The Intentional Community Grants Stream offers grants of up to $40,000 per year for up to three years for organizations, programs, or projects that address a priority challenge identified in our latest Vital Signs reports. Since each grant is renewable for two additional years, new grants are offered only every three years. The next application opportunity will open in 2023.
The Department of Canadian Heritage offers an endowment fund matching program to arts & culture organizations that offer public performances. DCH will match up to 100% of donations from private donors received by such organizations.
Sunshine Coast Foundation occasionally will consider requests for small grants for exceptional projects serving populations on the Sunshine Coast that are time-sensitive and cannot wait for the annual community grants cycle. Please note, that we are no longer accepting requests for Out-of-Cycle Grants in 2022.
